But he was FLAKY. He couldn't make up his mind if he wanted to be president or not. Remember how he shut down his campaign right in the thick of things in July, then he re-entered the race with a month to go until the election.

He couldn't even make up his mind in the early get go after he first broached the subject on Larry King. Recall, it took a "draft" to get him to run. Of course, Perot had begged for the "draft" on the King Show after saying he wasn't interested in being president. Huh?

Perot was a Martinet. There was the private investigation of the Bush family, the private negotiations with the North Vietnamese, campaign volunteers were forced to sign loyalty oaths and campaign leaders started to quit...leading Perot to quit the race in July just a half year after begging America to draft him to run.

And then, of course, there was Perot's personal choice of Admiral James Stockdale to be his vice-presidential running mate. Stockdale so tanked the vice-presidential debate that people started wondering if he was a bit crazy. A lot of voters said that they didn't want Stockdale in the heartbeat away position. Ratings started slipping...again.

These are just the highlights of what was wrong with Perot. He may have had some good ideas but he was much too much of a flake to be president.

I voted for him. Took my mother to one of his rallies in Portland. She ended up voting for him too!

He was 100% correct -- It all applies to todays economy -- Except move the decimal point and ADD some $000's.......

If he just wasn't so flippant with his Pointer, while going through his charts and graphs....was always afraid he'd hit someone nearby..
